4ms Bend Matrix, crazy sequencer


via this auction

Auction blurb: "what is the bend matrix? the bend matrix is a midi sequencer for circuit bent projects...a dynamic tool to store and recall your analog synth patches...a microcontroller brain that leeches onto a host circuit...a signal router/mixer that can be played like an instrument and patched to your other midi gear...an octophonic surround-sound system controller for routing and spinning 4 inputs to 8 outputs...a circuit bending controller for live performance, e.g. turn a thrift-store kids keyboard into an arpeggiating, sequenced, midi-controlled player piano (forget squinting over a pcb with an alligator clip in the dark trying to find your glitch point!)...an automatic patch-bay and sequencer with real-time analog controls: strobe, arp, gloob, random....a meta-instrument: play the playing of other sound-makers, routing them into each other, multiple outputs/effects, programming and saving patches what does the bend matrix do?

connect/disconnect glitch points within an external circuit-bent device (two separate 4x4 matrices or one single 4x8 matrix) connect/disconnect/route audio inputs into multiple outputs (4 inputs=>8 outputs or 8=>4)act as a patch matrix for modular synthesizers, or other cv/signal routingstore up to 128 "patches" in memory (memory is held even when power is disconnected)sequence the 128 stored patches at specified bpm (2 - 2000 bpm)generate random patchesapply effects to the current patch (or sequence of patches) using analog controls: randomization, arpeggiation, strobing, gloobing.inputs midi note/cc commands, so you can program your patches and sequences using standard midi gearoutputs midi note/cc commands, so you can use the bend matrix to sync up to other midi gear (video effects, etc...)how might i use it?a. circuit bendingadd midi in/out to your circuit bent projectsprogram/save/recall patches of bend pointssequence trigger points to essentially convert any sound generating device into a player pianoreal-time analog controls (joystick, knobs, photocells) provide special effects/glitching/strobing/arpeggiation and randomizationb. effect switching/re-orderingchange effect ordering and routings on the fly: store up to 8 patches per bank, with 16 banksseries, parallel, and series-parallel configurations possiblesequence your effect changes, so you can simply hit "next" after each song and the next effect orderingup to 4 effects in any order and combination of in/out of the loopdynamic re-routing

Modular synthesizerspatch synth modules together using a central button matrix to control routingssave/recall patches, (8 per bank, 16 total banks = 128 patches)sequence patches within banks, sequence playback of multiple bankssplit matrix functionality allows one half to control patches (e.g. lfo->vcf, adsr->vca, etc) while the other half can send midi note commands or maked. art installationsflexible configuration allows a variety of sound sources and amplifiers to be dynamically routed (16 total bi-directional ports: e.g 4 inputs => 8 outputs, or two separate 4 in => 4 out...)route trigger/sensor/microphone signals to various processing devicesoutputs can trigger lights, sounds, motion, anything that runs on electrical power (use your imagination!)customizable matrix size and configurations available"
